    Oh right, I stand very corrected.

    Machine Wars? Yeah, it's not far off in vehicle mode at least, still no vertical grills though.

    Honest, guys, I don't like the look of this figure too much. But on the other hand I feel like saying this is the worst figure in the history of transformers design, and wishing exile and death to the mold's designer just might be a bit premature, or even exaggerated. It's just a feeling I'm having, please don't let me stop you from continuing your crusade.

    I think the 'bot proportions'll look a lot better when he's stood upright. Could definitely use a head-swap though.

    A friend of mine saw this and asked me if it was made out of styrofoam or rubber.

    Truly this is a perfect replica of Pat Lee's transformer designs. The Geewuun fanboys must be in heaven.

    That would mean they'd have to stop bitching for maybe a second so I'm afraid it won't happen.

    It very very very VAGUELY resembles Griffith's new RID Prime

    [​IMG]

    Mostly because of the legs (which are just regular G1 style legs anyway) and wheels in arms.

    But other than that it's nothing like it.

    Are we sure this is not the Pat Lee DW version instead? Tiny head, odd proportions, seems like that style..

    Yep, I can dig that. Thunderclash repaint it is then, as long as he's big enough.

    Honestly the head is the main reason as to why I think it's going to have a super more.

    Like there is literally no reason as to WHY they made the head so tiny and stupid looking other than having a super mode head go over it.

    I mean I know that it's a new design team but god the can't possibly suck THIS HARD can they?

    The only thing that resembles this design is that he is a red and blue truck! lol

    What kills me is that they approved that head. Just that alone is breaking my heart at how terrible it is. How could they haved messed that up so badly, it's freakin mind boggling.

    This looks terrible. The head is bad and the proportions are so off. . .

    Not the best Prime ever, but it looks like a chunky bit of fun. I've got MP01 & MP10 for ultimate Geewunny display Optimi, so something to tinker with is the only niche Hasbro could get me with...and they just might with this one.

    I really don't see any existing IDW design influencing this, so I reckon it's our first look at a future design for ol' walking matrix cabinet....or, judging by how that head screams stylised cartoon influence - there's the new RID series coming in 2015 along with this thing, so link there somewhere???
